Last Week of Free & Easy at Allsorts

 Good morning. Well it's Saturday so that means it's time for a brand new challenge at Allsorts - but it's not as we are still on our Free & Easy July theme but this is the last week to play Free & Easy.
As I said yesterday I think I'm addicted to making Christmas Cards and here's another one for the box - I really will be sorted this Christmas for sure :-)
This week we are sponsored by


and 1 lucky winner will receive a set of Aquamarkers

So here's what I used:

One of my most favourite House Mouse Christmas images coloured with PM's
I ran the Design Papers (MME - Merry Little Christmas) through the Grand Calibur with Creative Expressions tiny dots and large dots mask and then inked through the large dots mask with Versamark and embossed with Creative Expressions Glitter EP - it really is so sparkly IRL

 A few teeny weeny snowflakes with adhesive pearls, some gorgeous stain ribbon and super sparkly ribbon (from local sugar craft shop) and a scrummy glittery button from stash to finish it off.
Here's a close up of the image:
 Challenges I would like to enter:

Hope you can find some time to join us again this week.

We are going to see Cars2 in 3D later today - I remember when the first one came out - Jack got totally obsessed with it and we 'had' to trawl Portugal (we were on holiday) to find toy shops that sold the Cars characters so he could complete the set. He also had a 'Cars' themed party including taking 11 friends Go-Karting then two weeks later he was no longer into it!!!! Hope he stays interested in the film long enough to see the end :-)
Catch ya all later.
Have a fab day.
